Rich snippet enhancement report. It is available for those sites who have implemented reviews or ratings structured data. The report allows users to see errors, warnings and valid pages for markup implemented on your site. Additionally, if you fix an issue, you can use the report to validate it, which will trigger a process where Google re-crawls your affected pages. The report covers all the content types currently supported as review snippets.
Review snippet appearance in the performance report. This will allow users to see the performance of their review or rating marked-up pages on Google Search and Discover using the new “Review snippet” search appearance filter. This means that users can check the impressions, clicks and CTR results of your review snippet pages and check their performance to understand how they are trending for any of the dimensions available.
Review snippet in rich results test. After adding review snippets structured data to your pages, you can test them using the rich results test tool. You can test a code snippet or submit a URL of a page. The test shows any errors or suggestions for your structured data.
Why should you care? If your site implements reviews on its pages, these tools can open up a lot of information on how well those pages are performing in the Performance report. It can also help you debug issues with pages not yet showing the reviews in the search results.
